Who: Former Obama Green Jobs Czar Van Jones
What: At the Take Back the American Dream conference in Washington on Monday, he said of conservatives: "They say we've got to eliminate the EPA -- just wipe it out. The EPA, which has probably saved more American lives in the past 30 years than even the Department of Defense."
Why it's dim: We hear that 72 percent of statistical comparisons at left-wing conferences are made up on the spot.
Cure: Say it out loud: "Reality-based."
